LDEA Burns Huge Quantity of Narcotics in Yekepa

first_imgLDEA Officers (right) along with security at the burning of narcotics in YekepaThe Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency on Saturday, December 22, 2018 burned huge quantity of marijuana and other narcotic drugs in the mining town of Yekepa in Nimba County.The LDEA Commander Maj. Arnold D. Kenewon put the quantity of the drugs to 120 kilograms of marijuana and 20 grams of cocaine, among other illegal substances.He said the drugs were arrested in different localities in Nimba, including the Dulay Border Point, Bewahlay, Yekepa and other far places in Nimba, but they decided to destroy the drugs in Yekepa to serve as a deterrent to those involved in trafficking and also signal to the public that the drugs arrested or seized from users are burned or destroyed.Maj. Kenewon explained that those arrested along with the drugs were sent to court for prosecution and warned the public to desist from drug trafficking and assist the LDEA in combating illegal drug acts.The burning of the drugs was very amazing to the public, especially those living around the concession area; because it was their first time to see such a huge quantity of narcotics to be set ablaze by state security.Every year, the LDEA destroys huge consignments of narcotics products in Nimba, but the burning exercise has always been in Ganta and Sanniquellie. Taking it to another locality was very strange to those who had up to this point never witnessed the burning exercise.“This is my first time seeing this kind of action, where huge drugs are set ablaze by security,” said Rebecca Y. Mulbah, Township Commissioner in Yarmin.She lauded the LDEA for the exercise and urged the government to do more in combating the trafficking and speedy prosecution of those involved, adding, “this is so dangerous for our children’s lives and it has to be stopped immediately.”In 2016, the LDEA arrested a Nigerian for carrying huge quantity of cocaine at the Ganta Check Point, after he had traveled with the cocaine concealed in his African slipper from Nigeria through Ivory Coast, before entering Liberia through Loguatuo.The perpetrator was sent to the Sanniquellie Magisterial Court for prosecution. Since then, however, the case remains limbo, after it was alleged that the perpetrator was placed on the docket.Many people who witnessed the burning believe that government is not ready to deal with drug traffickers and users, because the law is weak.Another case involving two Nigerians, Chini Obi and Sam Eze, charged for “Illicit trafficking of Narcotic Drugs” continues to languish on the court docket, since the case was filed on March 30, 2017.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Finish the job NDP urges Liberals to expunge cannabis records before election

first_imgOTTAWA — The NDP justice critic is urging the Liberal government to help him improve a bill to help Canadians carrying burdensome cannabis records and ensure the legislation passes before the fall election.Murray Rankin put forward a private member’s bill last year to expunge cannabis records, to ensure past records for simple possession are wiped outright.He says the Trudeau government’s current approach to suspend records rather than expunge them is far from enough to help an estimated 500,000 Canadians carrying past offences.Earlier this month, the federal government introduced legislation designed to provide no-cost, expedited record suspensions, formerly referred to as pardons, for simple cannabis possession.Rankin says he has spoken with Liberals and Conservatives who have shown an interest in allowing for expungments, noting U.S. jurisdictions where cannabis is legal are also moving forward with this approach.A spokesperson for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says the government welcomes “constructive ideas” from any MP to improve legislation and will consider proposals during the normal parliamentary process.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Photios Tannous quit Libs to stay as lobbyists

first_imgTwo of New South Wales’ most powerful conservative lobbyists Michael Photios and Joe Tannous have quit the Liberal Party to keep their lobbyists jobs. This comes as Prime Minister Tony Abbott ruled that party members should no longer work as lobbyists to avoid conflicts of interest. The two resigned from the party just hours after Mr Abbott announced the new. Mr Photios, a former NSW State minister and a powerful figure in politics, resigned from the NSW Liberal Party executive after 30 years of service. “I have always conducted myself in the operation of all government relations advisory services with the utmost integrity and entirely consistent with the relevant state and federal rules,” Mr Photios said. “Notwithstanding the legitimacy of party officials working in government relations, I agree with the Prime Minister that potential conflicts of interest, either real or perceived, need to align with community expectation.” Mr Abbott drew a line in the sand, saying party members now must choose who they align themselves with to keep the party’s integrity safe. “I am determined to ensure that as far as the new Coalition government in Canberra is concerned that not only is it clean and fair, but it’s seen to be clean and fair,” he said. “That’s why I’m determined to ensure you can either be a powerbroker or a lobbyist but you can’t be both.” The Prime Minister’s comments could also explain why Arthur Sinodinos was overlooked for a Cabinet position. Mr Sinodinos was chairman of a company called Australian Water Holdings before he went into Federal Parliament and it is now being investigated by the NSW anti-corruption commission for a government contract it won last year. Mr Abbott’s decision will also affect the likes of former federal minister turned party official Santo Santoro in Queensland, as well as former Howard government minister Alexander Downer in South Australia.
